    PB has more good fats than bad, I think you are doing the right thing using it in moderation. I love PB and J on whole wheat bread, but I put 6 table spoons easy on just one sandwich. Just like peanuts, a small handful a day is ok.

    Look into reduced sodium brands that do not add any salt that should help keep you looking more cut.

    If you have Kroger supermarkets in your area, their house-brand natural peanut butter is excellent, easily as good as the expensive stuff they sell at the whole foods stores, for a fraction of the price. I'd be willing to bet that other national chains have similar products. "Ingredients: Peanuts, salt."

    The Crunchy is especially good.

    A major name brand that has nothing added is Peter Pan. It has a yellow lid instead of the red. Look for it.

    I usually eat 2-4 tbs. a day myself. As long as you're not eating the whole jar at once, and as long as it fits into your diet plan, there's nothin wrong with it.
